Once I heard there was a town in Costa Rica called Montezuma, I knew immediately we had to get there. We did some research and found out that the town actually has a lot to offer, so we booked a hotel last minute and headed there this weekend. We drove out to Puntarenas on the Pacific coast, then took a one hour ferry ride over to the Nicoya peninsula, and then drove about another hour down to pretty much the tip of the peninsula. We were told by Costa Ricans to get to the ferry an hour early, but we got there about 10 minutes prior to departure (thanks, roadwork) and ended up having no trouble! It actually worked out perfectly. The ferry ride provided gorgeous views and wonderful hair treatments from the insane amount of wind. It also had a snack bar, so obviously Andrew cracked a Pilsen for the ride.
Montezuma is a small, quaint town that sits on a hill, with only about three streets making up the town. The main street sits parallel to the ocean and has spectacular views. To get to our hotel we had to hope into a Land Rover and drive a mile or two down the beach! The beach was so beautiful. It is by far the prettiest beach we have seen here in Costa Rica. The pure white sand, bright blue waters, rows of palm trees, and tons of huge rocks make it so incredible. On top of that, the area is very secluded so at many times there was hardly anyone on the beach!
We spent many hours laying on the beach or in hammocks provided by our hotel, walking up and down the beach, and Andrew even did some fishing with no luck ! How beautiful does this place look?! I really hope the pictures do it justice!
